Amerian Idol Question
So, I haven't really been following this season of Amercan Idol, but I caught a few shows here and there. For those of you who watched the Finale, did anyone else feel a little awkward after the winner was announced and Ryan Seacrest followed a crying, overcome David Cook around the stage, then gave him the "opportunity" to share how he was feeling in the moment? (Uh, I think the cry and walking around dazed on the stage pretty much summed up the picture for me). So, when they had successfully difussed any and all momentum from the show and the crowd was silent, the mother and brother run up onto the stage and bear hug him (still in silence, not thunderous cheering) while David is still trying to answer the "How do you feel in this moment?" question. Then, as if someone suddenly had a great idea of how to make the moment even more awkward, they ushered the mother and brother off the stage and urged the other AI kicked off contests towards David to stand in an awkward (are we sensing a pattern here?) group around David as he sang and gave David A. side hugs. I found myself cringing on my couch wishing it would all just come to an end. Just wondering if anyone else was cringing on their couches?
